Euro Python Education Summit
The popular programming language Python, included as part of Raspbian, the free Linux operating system for the Raspberry Pi, is rising in popularity in schools for teaching text based programming. In response, the organisers of the Euro Python Conference taking place this year in Bilbao, Spain, are holding an Education Summit. We’re looking forward to attending. They said:
Education has always been an important topic for the Python community as Python was intended to be an easy, yet powerful, understandable language to be used by anyone. With the rising interest from teachers and schools in educational tools, many of them running in Python, and in the use of Python for educational purposes it is just expected from the Python community to respond accordingly.
So, in this year's Euro Python we are organising an Educational Track with the collaboration of Raspberry Pi Foundation for July 24th. There will be education focused talks, birds of a feather to debate and Educational Sprints for the building of education focused projects during the weekend.
Furthermore, in order to facilitate the attendance, we have reduced the ticket cost to student price for the teachers interested in the event. Of course, remember that we have the financial aid program at the disposal for those who may need it.
We hope to see many teachers, educational enthusiasts and developers at the event, to share skills and develop classroom solutions.
Keep on computing!
